Re: 2000 V70 - What does this pipe do?

I thought it controlled some aspect of the airbox thermostat... When I ripped the airbox thermostat out I capped both ends and have gotten less frequent P0455s.

Re: What did you do to your Volvo today? (now Sticky!!)

Swapped in some struts, spring seats, and strut bearings on my brother's 2000 V70.

Two things learned:
- Wow, those top nuts come off with an impact.
- Channellocks (16" ones) are useful for taking off the star-shaped nut.

Re: Broken fuel line clip to fuel filter

Fellas, in all seriousness, has anyone rebuilt this line? https://d354nuoz4t18d4.cloudfront.net/images/996a7fa078cc36c46d02f9af3bef918b/6fba8454bf180830b8801cda4166ac2d.jpg?cb=1512067131 It appears that it's a hard nylon line (wrapped in regular 3/8 rubber fuel line) with that useless pressure fitti...

My bushings are original Volvo. I really am tired of spending money on this car and hoped these inserts would help.
I feel your pain, man.

Good luck and let us know if they work out for you.

Re: Front end clunk... Anyone tried these ?

Make sure the sway bar end links are tight. Very tight. Very very tight. And check the engine3 mount, sway bar bushings as suggested. Problems with the subframe bushings are possible, but they are very rare while the other things mentioned are very common. Then you will have a problem undoing them....

Re: 1998 S70 Which Manual Transmission [gear] Oil to use?

I put the Volvo OE fluid in about 15K ago, nothing but smooth shifting since!

I had leaks from both transaxle seals, so fluid was low. Definitely needed refreshing. Maybe it was mental, but replacing the fluid certainly made the transmission feel less notchy.

Sometimes there is a loud ticking noice coming from the engine. Hard to locate exactly from which part of the engine. I noticed it starts when the car is idling for a while. All belts timing and serpentine) have recently been replaced. This noise was already there before the belts were replaced. I ...
